Family reunions are an ideal time to find out about all those cousins on your mother’s side that you never knew growing up. Chances are you’ll be finding more in common with them than your own siblings and then you’re going to want to find your parents and ask them why did you never meet these amazing people. Then you turn around and come to the dreaded realization that you can’t find anyone you were with a moment ago and you’re back to mingling with strangers in the park that you aren’t sure if they were there as the third aunt once removed or the person down the street who walks their dog in the park.
Help Recognize Family
One ingenious way to prevent this awkward outcome is the use of custom made family t-shirts, so that everyone knows exactly who is family and who are kind strangers who just came for the free food. Shirts could be made in bright colors to help easily identify family members, or could be more neutral colors and have the family name printed on them. Either way, it will help tell who is who.
Having t-shirts made for a family reunion is a memorable way to commemorate the event. Shirts are a useful item that everyone can wear for years to come, and even to future reunions. These customized items not only serve as souvenirs from the reunion, but they can also give a sense of pride knowing you belong to that family.
Designing Custom T-Shirts
Having matching t-shirts for your family reunion probably sounds like a great idea. However, before shirts can be ordered, they have to be designed. There are lots of different options when it comes to customizing shirts.
First of all, style and color. Styles can vary, and the best option depends on family preferences. Would they be more comfortable in a V neck, or a regular t-shirt? If too many people have different preferences, consider ordering more than one style. In addition, the shirt color will need to be decided on. For this option family opinions will need to be counted, but the type of design to be used will also have to be considered.
The design that goes on the shirt can be almost anything. For example, the the theme of the event could play a part in design. The family might want to include a picture to indicate a cruise or trip to a famous adventure park on the shirt. If reunions are an annual event and the family travels to different places each time, a unique design commemorating the location could be used. However, if a reunion doesn’t happen that often, a simpler design, perhaps incorporating the family name, could be used.
Another idea to consider is using a logo or slogan in the design. If there’s a saying that the family knows and uses, that can count as their slogan. Or perhaps there’s a family motto that’s been passed down through the years. A slogan can almost be seen as some code that only members of the whole family will understand. This can make a great addition to a t-shirt design.
